This is a podcast that delves deep into some of the most popular, and lesser known video games of the past. Play along with three completely unqualified gamers as we explore the nuances of a different title each month. More than just another review, this is an analysis of the development process, level design, story, game-play mechanics, legacy and more. Join us as we break down a game from inception to completion as well as its impact on the industry as a whole.
I’m sorry Nate, I’m afraid I cannot do that.
This month the guys are playing System Shock 2! Journey back to a time before AI in games was just turrets with terrible aim and even worse dad jokes. This is Sci-Fi/Survival Horror at its finest–there are no cubes, there is no cake, but there are many lies. But before we even start talking about the game lets be honest, at least two of our three hosts will abandon their controllers in fear. Who will tough it out? Who will pretend to finish it with Wikipedia? Who will just leave and play something else? Find out next time on Dallas!
Have you ever wanted to play a game that was so good you hate it? Have you ever felt compelled to play it for a podcast episode and then spend an inordinate amount of time talking about it? Well…We did! Spanning the time from 1996 to 2016, X-COM has pretty much always been around, and it offered a great opportunity to compare old vs. new. We did it. Ad nauseam. JOIN US!
More boosters! More struts! NO! WAIT! EJECT EJECT EJE-……*Revert to launch*
Why wait for Elon to take us to Mars when you can do it yourself right now from the comfort of your own sad basement apartment? 2020 is finally here which means we are that much closer to the release of Kerbal Space Program 2. With this in mind, the boys decided to revisit an old favorite. If KSP teaches us anything, it’s that there is a silver lining to any failure…EXPLOSIONS! YAYYYY!!
ReZOURCERS under attack! Episode 6 see’s the boys tackle a few games that have a cult following, and even a long awaited 3rd chapter coming out in 2020. Homeworld was a groundbreaking 4X RTS that revolutionized the genre. We laughed, we cried, we even held each other tenderly. You won’t want to miss this one.
HOLD IT! Break out those DS’s, Switches, GBA’s, or PC’s, the boys had a run at Ace Attorney this month. We spent way too much time and an embarrassing amount of hair gel trying to get our hair as sufficiently spikey as Phoenix Wright’s, and hopefully you did too! Enter a world of courthouse drama and anime sweat beads in this trilogy of games and find out what game we are tearing up next month.
CHOO CHOOOOO!!! Travel back in time to when the west wasn’t won, women couldn’t vote, and dying of dysentery was fashionable. This month the boys played Railroad Tycoon 3 and now all feel a little more entrepreneurial. the world of gaming is usually cutthroat, but this game sure takes it to a new level.
In light of Bloodlines 2 being previewed at E3, we are revisiting the flawed but fabulous Bloodlines 1! Ever wanted to be a creature of the night? How about fight gargoyles, ghouls, and demons? What about land yourself a big tiddy goth girlfriend? Well you are in luck ladies and gents, it’s all inside. Come hear what your favorite boys have to say about this much beloved and derided game!
What’s better than an island getaway full of booze, babes, and BBQ’s? An island getaway full of zombies, fruit, and energy drinks, that’s what! This month we played Dead Island: Definitive edition and boy did we have a lot to say about it. We also upgraded our recording equipment so if you couldn’t stand our last train wreck of an episode, then you’re in luck!
Here in the first episode of Command Center we talk about a classic! KOTOR is beloved by millions and is a piece of art in its own right. But does it hold up to a scrutinizing eye looking at it with today’s standards? Hint: 2/3 of us believe it does. Find out who was wrong and get the scoop on what the next game we are playing is so you can play along with us!
